Acclaimed at film festivals around the world Ask the Sexpert is a charming and hilarious portrait of 90-year-old Dr. Mahinder Watsa, a widower who writes a sex advice column for a newspaper in India. Highly taboo in India, sex remains unfit for public discussion let alone promotion, making the work of Dr. Watsa all the more impressive. To millions of Mumbai newspaper readers, his sex advice column is as much of an institution as it is a lifeline. With a non-moralistic approach and generous doses of humour, he emboldens men and women to write in and change their lives, if not their sex positions. Controversial and completely charming, the good doctor is in. More information at http://www.askthesexpertmovie.com/

Reviews

A surprisingly funny, frank & fascinating discussion about sex...Dr. Watsa is a fantastic talent who is incredibly endearing and watchable. He responds to the questions he receives in a direct manner and with frequent dashes of his wry sense of humour. Essential viewing for everyone.
